(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The output voltage of an a.c. generator is

[tex]\emph{V}[/tex]=[tex]\emph{NBA}[/tex][tex]\omega[/tex]sin([tex]\omega[/tex]t).

When the voltage is connected across an inductor, the rms current in the inductor is found to be 10mA. What will Be the rms current if the rotating speed of the coil inside the generator is doubled?

3. The attempt at a solution

I try to rearrange the equation, what i think is that the reactance of the inductor is constant so that if

Xc=[tex]\frac{NBA\omega}{\sqrt{2}Irms}[/tex] (strangely i cannot get the root 2 shown in the faction)

Then [tex]\omega\propto[/tex]I_{rms}

So if the rotational speed doubles the Irms also doubled.

But however the answer is the reactance change and the rms current remains at 10mA.

I dont understand how these kind of question can be solved cause there isnt any constant I can make use of in the question...
